When I was pregnant with Theo, my six-year-old, I LOVED Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Anyone that walked in my house knew not to touch my Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. They were welcomed to have anything in the house EXCEPT THAT!
Well one day, my husband came home and surprised me(I love surprises) with just a little two pack of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I didn’t really do anything out of the ordinary to get such a great surprise. However, my husband knew that it would make me happy. BOY! Was I ever happy! I saw that little two pack in his hand and my eyes lit up like a kid in a candy store I threw my arms around his neck and squeezed ever so tightly saying “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” Honestly! I really did love that candy that much!
When God gives you little blessings, do you get as excited as I did with the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? Do you praise Him saying thank you over and over again? Can you imagine how different your life would be if you showed that much gratitude toward Him?
Seriously! Look, God loves blessing us. He really does! Unfortunately, some don’t believe in Him or His blessings. While others who do believe in God’s blessings take Him for granted. Being able to open our eyes and breathe are blessings by themselves.
We need to stop getting so excited about the worldly things and get excited about the Holy Spirit! We need to be as excited about God as God is for us! Yes you read this right. God loves us and He is so excited for us. It pleases Him when He has blessed you and you give all the praise and glory to Him. After all, He is the one and only reason we are here.
